Summary

Now, after the Bucks evened the series at two games apiece with a 107-96 victory at Milwaukee's Fiserv Forum on Sunday afternoon, the Nets head back to New York for Game 5 on Tuesday facing the possibility of playing the biggest game of their season without two of their three superstars.Kyrie Irving was unable to return to Sunday's contest with a sprained right ankle. And while the 34% conversion rate from deep wasn't anything special, it was a vast improvement from the 24.7% clip (22-for-89) that the Bucks shot through the first three games of the series.And with the possibility of both Harden and Irving being sidelined, Milwaukee will be able to direct even more attention toward Brooklyn's remaining superstar, Kevin Durant, who had 28 points in Sunday's loss but went 9-for-25 from the field and shot a combined 20-for-53 in the Nets' two losses in Milwaukee to even the series.Nash took exception with some of the defense Brooklyn played against Durant -- specifically the effort displayed by Durant's longtime friend and fellow Texas Longhorn P.J. Tucker. While Brooklyn opened the game 6-for-14 from 3-point range, the Nets were just 4-for-19 after Irving's injury and committed 10 turnovers over the final 30 minutes of action."We missed him, obviously," Nash said.
